0=(.3*cos(B)*cos(P)*cos(60))+(.2*sin(60))-(.3*sin(B)*sin(60))+S

0=(.3*cos(B)*sin(P))-.15

0=(.2*cos(60))-(.3*cos(B)*cos(P)*sin(60))-(.3*sin(B)*cos(60))

Unknowns are B, P, and S.

I have tried the following code which yields an answer:

syms B P S;

[B,P,S] = solve((.3*cos(B)*cos(P)*cos(pi/3))+(.2*sin(pi/3))-(.3*sin(B)*sin(pi/3))+S, (.3*cos(B)*sin(P))-.15, (.2*cos(pi/3))-(.3*cos(B)*cos(P)*sin(pi/3))-(.3*sin(B)*cos(pi/3)));

// note that the above is in one single line.

Unfortunately the answer is given to me in the form of another equation with extremely long numbers. I need MATLAB to give me an answer in the form of one number, how can this be done?

If all else fails I heard that this can be easily done in Maple, but I have no idea how to use it.

Thanks in advance.
